It was lovely to welcome to Erasmus Darwin House the children from Lichfield Cathedral’s Summer School. They enjoyed earning Garden Explorer badges after hunting for hedgehogs, spotting snails, sniffing pizza herbs, and exploring the plants and wildlife in our fabulous herb garden. Then they competed in the Magnets Challenge: how many paperclips can YOU pick up with just one magnet? is gravity or magnetism the more powerful force? And they sorted out Mrs Darwin’s kitchen equipment to see what is still in use today. We love having the Summer School at Darwin House!
